Evolved

“All religion,

my friend,

is simply evolved

out of fraud, fear,

greed, imagination,

and poetry.”

~ Edgar Allan Poe

vivid mental picture

things that don’t exist

nature’s true colors

camouflage

can you see me now

Poem:

.

is there another world parallel to our own
what some have called the twilight zone

where everything is opposite, black or white
where the darkest dark becomes the bright

no good or evil, just a calm
ethereal music accompanying a psalm

everything positive, no negatives allowed
nine is the number assigned to every cloud

a surreal place that is not a dream
all meals end with peaches and cream

every soul is born with a red heart
all other features are a la carte

feelings that do not include fear and hate
there is no crooked, only straight

could we live in both worlds at the same time
in a place where there would be no crime

a place where speech writers would not take sides
where politicians don’t change with the tides

as long as there are egos it will not happen
but there is no reason that we cannot imagine

Today, think love, peace and prosperity
allow every motive to be benefit charity

Time

“Time for you and time for me,

And time yet for a hundred indecisions,

And for a hundred visions and revisions,

Before the taking of a toast and tea.”

walking in the rain

hiding tears

life’s disappointment

Poem:

.

how boring, a life without emotions
keep it simple, nothing too wacky
if they would only arrive in unequal quotients
a little sad, but mostly just happy

is it the merry go round
or is it the roller coaster
what constitutes a mind that is sound
remembering the cat clinging to the poster

today, it is let go and let God
my emotions, where I want them to be
making sure to never act the fraud
praying only on bended knee

life best lived with a positive attitude
a solid foundation built with gratitude
